Moderate to hot.
For caution, if they are outside, bring them inside before the first frosts.
It needs a sunny or, failing that, very bright environment.
It tolerates full sun but expose it gradually.
Watering the Tillandsia :
En intérieur :
L'été, vaporisez tous 7 jours. S'il y a de très fortes chaleurs, vaporisez 2 fois par semaine.
L'hiver, vaporisez tous les 15 jours. Attention, s'il y a beaucoup de chauffage, il faudra vaporiser plus souvent.
In summer, spray every 7 days. If it is very hot, spray twice a week.
In winter, spray every 15 days. Be careful, if there is a lot of heat, you will need to spray more often.
Maintenance of Tillandsias
No need to spray, except in dry summer (spray as indoors).
Use mineral water.
Every fortnight in summer, once a month in winter, dilute orchid fertiliser in the irrigation water (one part fertiliser to 3 parts mineral water).
It is a plant that needs to be well ventilated, it must dry quickly.
Decoration and gift ideas
Like all epiphytic plants, it lives without soil and the possibilities for decoration are endless.
They can therefore be placed in hanging gardens, fixed to a plant wall, or placed in Zen gardens or shells for example for Zen decoration.
As the "filles de l'air" are rootless, they can be placed wherever you want, fixed on fishing nets, frames, vine stocks or even on driftwood.
The different varieties can be used to decorate the whole house: living rooms but also bathrooms for the varieties that like humidity very much.
Some use them to decorate terrariums and vivariums because they are not toxic for either humans or animals.
We also have many requests to decorate hotels, restaurants, guest rooms, wellness salons but also receptions, galas and weddings.
